Hammr Growler is the filthy brother of the not particularly demure Hammr+ and a part of the Hammr Suite, a classic tonewheel organ sample set developed with Oasis/Sheryl Crow keyboard player Mikey Rowe and recorded by genius Andy Britton at the very lovely Toyroom Studios here in Brighton.The Growler is a 3GB monster that captures from 4 mic positions the full tilt sound of Mikeys favourite 888000000 setting on his 1959 B3 through a cranked up Leslie cabinet, and frankly it is one heck of a sound !
